DIY Spider Costume

V went to school today as a spider.

DIY Spider Costume

Being a mom made me a creative person.

You see I’m not the most creative person in my family. My mom knows how knit, sew, draw, and has a green thumb. My sister Bernadette is the artist she can create artsy stuff making use of materials available on hand, she plays the guitar, knows how to draw, a good singer and dancer. My brother he’s good at fixing things and learned how to draw and played the guitar because Bernadette taught him how. As for me well I like to tell my siblings what I want and they happily (forced) to do it for me (perks of being the eldest).

Everything changed though when V came to my life. I wanted to learn how to bake yummy cakes and make them pretty which led me to learn how to work with fondant. The joy I saw in his eyes when I made his Dragon cake was priceless (he’s actually planning his 5th birthday cake now).

I once taught that I’m not the person who can stay in the house and be all domesticated, but alas here I am a stay at home mom. I easily gave up 8 years of corporate life and be a housewife and I’m happy with my decision (I can no longer see myself going back).

Why all this drama?

I made an effort and made this spider costume for V. My mom will sure be proud.

You will need a black long sleeves, black socks, black bonnet, black string/id lace and newspapers .

1. Fill 2 pairs of socks with newspaper balls.

2. Sew socks on the sides.

3. Tie or sew black strings in each socks (the part where the socks bends)

4. Make a bracelet like where your child can hold or wear so he can move his spider feet.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).

    Too cute! I don’t know if I want to go back to the corporate world either. But I still plan to go back to work one day…just not in Dubai.

    One day you really should consider giving cake decorating classes! I’ll be your first student! 😀
